The usual kung fu antics bring a Chinese protagonist to Japan in search of revenge on the Screaming Ninja. Sumos, dojos, and thieves, oh my! The intense final battle is not to be missed: a long, brutal affair, fought first on top of a moving train and then between 2 raging waterfalls.

"I got this movie as a four pack for $2. I definitely wasn't dissapointed, while snake crane secret is the only one I like in this, screaming ninja isn't the worst movie ever. This is kinda like wang yu's rage of the master(which is in the four-paCK), meaning they both costed about $10,000 to make. They actually could have costed $10 and I wouldn't have noticed the difference. Overall Screaming tiger has a ton of non-realistic fights, but the final fight did nothing special. The fact they were fighting on a moving train was cool, but they should have done some really cool stunts. The final fight is just sloppy and you start to wonder if you are gonna make it through to the end. Hard movie to watch, but if you are a HUGE, MonSTROUS Wang Yu fan, I think you will like it."

"Jimmy Wang Yu(King of Boxing) rules in this 1973 film that was so rare that it incorporated the star's name in the title.One of the few such films was Screaming Tiger which was also known under other titles such as Screaming Ninja and several others.The Movie is set in early 1900's China.Essentially playing an extension of himself,Wang Yu spends much of his time defending himself against evil martial-arts masters.He also tries to make sense of a tragic incident from his past.The cast under the direction of Jian Lung includes Jimmy Wang Yu,Zhang Qing-Qing,Kang Hai,Zi Lan,Lung Fei,Lu Ping and Wei Chao-Rui which makes this an excellent Matial Arts Film that's very well worth watching!!"
